    I was looking for a potato cheese soup recipe that I could use here where I live-- in Germany-- because cheddar cheese is almost nonexistant here. I live in middle Bavaria and none of the shops around here have it, not even the cheese shops.  -  17 Sep 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I LOVE this recipe! I find that it tastes better with only two tablespoons of fat free mayo and broccoli added. Everytime I've made it this way people have raved! Thanks for this GREAT treat!  -  21 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I havent tried this recipe yet but to reply to the reviewer from middle bavaria, I also live in middle bavaria (regensburg) and I was about to make the same comment about callling a recipe german that calls for swiss cheese, but you beat me to it. However the point of my comment is this, if you are looking for cheddar go to the closest kaufland and head for the cheese counter- it does exist here, it just takes going to a giant discount supermarket to find it (I've never found it in netto but ours is small, and a bigger aldi might have it too).  -  14 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
